I wish I saw this 2 months ago when I bought my Toshiba Tecra R840-16J. This thing have so many stuff installed and since I'm not an expert in this area I do not know what to keep, if anything!!!
And I bought from Norton: 360 v6, Ghost and Utilities15! It seems nothing of these is a good thing to have installed!
I would like to have the max performace for my laptop without hurting anything!
I have installed a lot (?) of sw I really use (Office, astronomy/astrophotography specific sw, Adobe Master Collection CS5, etc) now and It will be much more time consuming now to reinstall everything if I go for a fresh Windows 7 install !!
